FreeBSD : apr -- multiple vunerabilities (dd943fbb-d0fe-11df-95a8-00219b0fc4d8)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 49770


New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


Secunia reports :

Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in APR-util, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).

Two XML parsing vulnerabilities exist in the bundled version of expat.

An error within the 'apr_brigade_split_line()' function in buckets/apr_brigade.c can be exploited to cause high memory consumption.


Update the affected packages.
